Hi, I'm Mark.

A reliable mature kiwi guy who has sold my home (April 2016) in Tauranga. I have returned to university studies to further my qualifications. Renting would mean not having the joy & company of animals, which I love & miss since my dog "Boss" passed away.

I'm a experienced "Trusted House Sitter" with 17 recent reviews & endorsements, from here and another website, from happy house & pet owners.

For those people that have not used a house sitter before? The process and options I follow are:
- making the initial inquiry request
- I will send all other endorsements & MOJ police clearance doc's via email.
- swap contact details and then can call, txt or skype?
- arrange to meet at convenient time at to see if I would be the right fit for you & your pets?
- if "agreeable" for both parties, then discuss and confirm dates.
- then, until start date, draft a pet/s profile & complete the house care requirements?.
- I will contact you before start date, to come again, and go over the property and pets needs you have noted. And answer questions to make sure you have no concerns?
- come on start date at time you want me to arrive, before you leave

A bit about me?
Quiet, a non smoker and house proud. I am happy to maintain your property both inside and out, while your away. I know my way around most types of gardening equipment & the functions of a good vacuum cleaner, mops & cleaning agents to keep your home as clean as you left it.

I am looking for a nice quite place to study, walk the dog or cuddle the cat. I take the responsibility of caring for animals, especially other peoples very seriously. So you can be assured that what ever animals you have they will be well cared for!

I can make regular contact with homeowners via txt or email to reassure them that your pets are happy and there are no problems at the property.

If that sounds suitable and you would like to meet, to see if I would be the right fit for you and your pets. Please feel free to contact me.

Hi Mark, We feel super lucky to have had you house sit for us. He took amazing care of our 2 dogs, and both the house & property. Communication was great, and it was especially brilliant coming home to a spotless house, plus some touch ups around the garden and lawns. Everyone else seems to have said it already - but if you want a trustworthy, reliable and nice guy to care for your dogs and property get in touch, Thanks again Mark. Regards Chris

Hi there, In July 2018, Mark house sat for us for about 3 weeks, including looking after our 2 very energetic dogs, while we had an overseas break.. He did an exceptional job and I think the dogs miss him now more than they missed us while we were away:-)!! We would use him again as our "first choice" and have no hesitation in recommending to others as someone who is honest, reliable, easy to get on with, and who is great with dogs!! AAA++++ Thanks Mark!! Regards, Andy and Fran..

Mark is a top guy, so far has twice looked after my place, 2 dogs, 1 old cat, chooks etc. I swear the place was cleaner when i got back than when i left and if the dogs had had a choice they would have gone with him! :). Great communication and i believe as honest as they come - you could not do better

Mark house sat for us for 5 weeks. He was fabulous with the 3 dogs. He took them everywhere. He left our property in an immaculate condition. Will definitely have him look after our 3 precious dogs again.

Mark stayed in my guest house for 5 weeks in August/September 2016. The pets 'loved' him. So much so, they moved into his place while I was still around! Mark was great. He's very quiet and house proud. He did much more than what he needed to do and his help around the yard was much appreciated. Mark looked after my home like it was his own. Such a nice guy. Would definately recommend him but in doing so, hope he's still available when we want him to come look after our place again!

Mark had previously house sat for me several years ago and I had no hesitation in using his services again for 5 weeks. My dogs always loved him but I had forgotten how clean and tidy he was! We were VERY happy when we returned home.The house was very clean,new linen was placed out and the bed freshly made and the cat was happy. Mark also made sure their were essential supplies left in the fridge so we could relax on our return.We will happily recommend Mark to anyone and we will use him again.
